Boosting Value Co-creation in Design Through the Product-Service System Digital Twin: Questions to Be Answered

Abstract Digital Twins (DTs) are among the most hyped technologies of the 2020 s. Yet, the research dealing with the use of DTs in early Product-Service Systems design remains insufficiently systematized. Based on the findings of multiple-case studies in the Swedish manufacturing industry, the objective of this paper is to collect and present a set […]

Constitutive modeling of commercial pure titanium sheet based on non-associated flow rule and differential hardening

Abstract The commercial-pure titanium (CP-Ti) sheet has attracted a great interest from biomedical and aerospace industries because of its strong mechanical advantages such as lightweight, high strength, good formability, and corrosion-resistance. However, strong anisotropic features, such as evolutionary yield surface and strength difference in tension and compression, of the CP-Ti require advanced constitutive modeling compared […]

Designing Value-Robust Product-Service Systems by Incorporating Changeability: A Reference Framework

Abstract When a Product-Service System (PSS) has a longer lifecycle, it is subjected to several internal and external changes along its path that may deteriorate its value. A PSS capable of delivering value despite the circumstances is called a value robust PSS, and one way of achieving value robustness is by incorporating changeability. A lot […]

Boosting Value Co-creation in the Road Construction Industry Through Virtual Prototyping

Abstract When construction companies move forward in their servitization journey, there is an increasing need to exploit digital tools and models to facilitate the complex and dynamic interactions between entrepreneurs, customers, equipment manufacturers, energy providers and more during the early stages of the construction project design. This paper presents the application Augmented Reality (AR) and […]
